    The word is that Mike Lombardi, the new vice president of player personnel for the Cleveland Browns, is very very high on Mallet, and that the asking price will be the "number 6 overall pick this year, plus more."

    It seems too good to be true, but the fact that this is even being brought up suggests that his trade value might be much higher than I previously thought.

    Agree with Andy, it's probably not going to happen. But I know that every fan on this board would take that trade in a heartbeat, I would love that for sure.

    That would be highway robbery of the Al Davis caliber. No way that's going to happen. I'd say a 3rd or 4th is about right.

    So Belichick drafted Mallet in the 3rd round and developed him so 2 years later he could trade him for a pick in the same round or lower? Okay...

    How does Mallett's draft stock go down when he's been an understudy to potentially the greatest QB of all time, has untapped potential and this Quarterback class looks to be pathetic?

    Re: Rumor: Ryan Mallet to Browns *** 6th overall pick

    You guys crack me up!! [​IMG]

    1 ~ So I guess ~ based on your "logic" ~ that we were FOOLS to cut Ron Brace loose when we should've traded'm *** a 2nd Round at the very minimum!! [​IMG]

    2 ~ Taylor Price was worth at least a 3rd Rounder!! How could we be so stupid as to just cut'm?? [​IMG]

    3 ~ News Alert, boys: What we spent on a guy has very little to do with what we can get ***'m!!

    Chance Warmack come on down!! Our next HOF guard from Alabama. I'd be tempted to go DL, but the top 3 will prob be gone; D. Moore, S.Lotulelei and Werner. Jarvis Jones iffy physical. Gimme the big boy from Bama.

    Hell no. Trade back and grab another pick or two.. Besides, I wouldn't be surprised if the Pats drafted a RT with the likelihood of Vollmer leaving via free agency..

    And, I think you are severely discounted the OTs that are available.. Luke Joeckel being the big name..

    The only way cleveland would give the pats the six overall pick for mallet is if Mike Lynn or Mike Ditka was the GM.

    I think Joeckel will go 4th to Philly and Geno Smith 1st. Should have mentioned that. Doubt if anyone would want to trade up for what's left. I don't think the next two tackles are elite by any means; Eric Fisher and Lane Johnson. Milliner would be a possibility, if we let Talib walk. But, he's not guaranteed to be a sure thing. Warmack is multiple pro-bowler with a chance to be the best interior OL in the league.

    I think Warmack is a stud, but if the Pats had a top 6 pick they better take either Moore or Werner.

    Surprised you didn't consider Star Lotulelei. He'd be at the top of my list of who I'd think they draft.

    Just to note, if the Browns really do want him, BB's leverage is quite good as they're lacking a 2nd rounder. I'd be amazed at a #6 straight up, more likely a trade of firsts. Anyway, I'm sure this is fiction but it would be nice to see what BB would do with a #6 overall.

    Mallett is as good or better than any QB in this draft. Browns still wouldn't trade their 1st or swap their 1st for him. But Mallett fits what their HC likes to do. I could see something like a 3 this year and a conditional pick next year of some kind. The only way Cleveland can upgrade their QB is draft one in the first (very unlikely), sign a FA - or do a trade - so some kind of trade for Mallett isn't impossible.

    If they dont like Weeden(very likely, who likes the guy?) its a trade that makes sense. For the 6th overall? probably not. Too good to be true.

    I'd be more than happy with a 2nd.

    And mine. But you don't seriously think he'd be available at #6 if the Draft were today, do you?

    Even so...It's a long way to April 25th!! So we could always hope...:cool:

    If he were to make this trade, Lombardi would go down as the shortest gm stint in history.

    I don't want to kill the messenger but no freakin way.

    Maybe for a 3rd or 4th, even that would be questionable.

    The trade is ridiculous. That goes without saying. But just for *****s and giggles, if the Pats had #6:

    - Pats trade #6 to Chicago for #20 and #114
    - Pats trade #32 and #94 to Seattle for #25 and a 6th round pick
    - Pats trade #62 to Tennessee for #70 and #135
    - Pats sign Armon Armstead

    20. Jonathan Cooper, OG, North Carolina (NFL DraftScout #17)
    25. Alec Ogletree, OLB, Georgia (NFL DraftScout #44)
    70. Quinton Patton, WR, Louisiana Tech (NFL DraftScout #71)
    114. Tharold Simon, DB, LSU (NFL DraftScout #110)
    135. Reid Fragel, OT, Ohio St. (NFL DraftScout #178)

    That leaves the Pats with a 6th and 2 7th round picks to play around with for late round prospects. More importantly, it gives the Pats two 1st round picks for 2014. That could allow the Pats to possibly get a guy like Louis Nix, Stephon Tuitt, or Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

    If you look back at my original post, I said that I thought; Moore, Lotelelei and Werner would be gone. Then added that Geno Smith and Joeckel would be the other two picked before 6. That's how I came to Warmack. Who is actually a better football player than anybody but Joeckel.

    You do realize that I was responding to Manx, not to you, right? :confused:

    Because your response, here, reads as if you thought I was addressing you.

    And, yes: I'm pretty much in agreement with you about who'll be gone by #6. :)

    Gotcha. I wouldn't be against trading down a little. Not too much though. Warmack is going to be a multiple times pro-bowler. Him and Cannon on the right side might allow us to have our best running game since that other guy from Bama was dominating dt's.

    I think this talk about Cleveland interested in Mallett is great. Because, other teams interested don't know what's being offered. I personally feel Arizona is a better fit. New qb friendly coach in Arians whom is 60. Don't want to take a couple of years developing a qb. Ready to go receivers; Fitzy, Doucet and Floyd. Arizona might be able to move up and get Joeckel. Then trade for Mallett. I'd like their 2nd and a conditional pick based on his performance. IE 14 or more starts, 4000+ yards and .500 record. We get a first next year too.

    In case anyone gets too worked up about thinking there's any reality to this, the notion of the 6th Pick was forwarded by some guy who claims to've been an NFL "Operations Coordinator", whatever that is, but spends his entire day tweeting like a 15 year old Valley Girl, and generally makes incredibly vapid comments like:

    "Browns will have to give up number 6 overall pick this year, plus more. No clue what else."

    ...with absolutely no evident basis for making them!! :eek: :bricks:

    What about swap of firsts, Cleveland adds a third or forth. Pats trade down from 6, obtain 2014 1st and other assets, position themselves for either Bridgewater or Manziel as their next QB?

    Good stuff.

    1 ~ I'm absolutely Over The Moon about Chance Warmack, but I question his fit, here. Of course, I question Marcus Cannon's fit, here, as well, yet: here he is. I'm a big fan of mobile, Pulling & Trapping Offensive Guards, so I prefer the rather awesome Jon Cooper as a better athletic fit for what I hope we keep doing...not that Mad Bill's calling me for advice!! [​IMG]

    2 ~ I'm pretty giddy about Lombardi taking over CleveLand!! His arrival there does indeed appear to add substantial Market Value to Ryan Mallett. And if you're right about Zona ~ great Argument, by the way!! ~ then all it takes is two Bidders to squeeze some nice Value out of a guy who ~ up until a day or so ago ~ I wondered if he had any Market at all. That's still in question, mind you, but is looking far sweeter, today!! :D

    3 ~ Ahhhh...That Other Guy From Alabama. :cool:

    [​IMG]

    Always appreciate the Reference, Brother Penn. As you may know, I am a frothing fan of Offensive Guards, and John Hannah...well, he wasn't the worst one who's ever played this Great Game. :D

    Interesting, but I'd be shocked if that actually transpired: Book Value on that Swap, if CleveLand kicked in a 4th would be 1600 + 100 for, hopefully, 590, in addition to Mallett, which boils down to about 1100 Draft Dollars for Mallett, which is a Valuation of the #14 Pick.

    I can't imagine that that's even in the realm of possibility.

    But I like the way you're thinking!! :D

    I proudly wore number 73 in high school. In honor of Hawg. We didn't get a lot of Pats games on tv when we moved to Pa. I used have to watch for highlights on different sports shows. I remember after we played the Jets in either 78 or 79. Channel 11 from NY ter showed this clip of Hannah. He checked right because we were in a passing situation and out of the corner of his left eye he saw the Jets were blitzing a cb from the boundry. He did a reverse pivot and exploded into this un-suspecting cb and hit him. No exaggeration, the guy landed 7-8 yards from where Hannah hit him. He freaking launched him like NASA would a rocket. Girard showed the highlight 3-4 times and is laughing hysterically. It was so unbelievable it looked cartoonish. Even wraps up his sportscast with it. And, he was doing the Jets highlights. Unbelievably, I've never seen this on Patriots highlights. Wish they could get footage of it for all to see.
